Communicating Scholarly Ideas in the Digital Age

Communicating Scholarly Ideas in the Digital Age

About this Event

The quickening pace of digital information gathering, processing, and dissemination has brought with it the expectation of instantaneous scholarship. Scholars writing blogs and using Twitter to transmit knowledge and a message is now commonplace.

Our panel of thought leaders discussed the new digital paradigm and what it means for scholarly inquiry – and the emergence of public scholarship, a term which encompasses diverse ways of creating and circulating knowledge for and with different public audiences and communities.
